ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. – A Louisiana man walking a dog across State Road 16 near the St. Augustine Outlet Mall on Tuesday night died after he was struck by a pickup truck, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Troopers say 46-year-old Allen Gubser, of Bogalusa, La., was crossing State Road 16 at County Road 206 in an area not designated for pedestrians just before 9 p.m. when he was struck by a pickup truck driven by Erika Lazarock, 21, of St. Augustine.

Gubser was taken to Baptist South, where he died. Lazarock was not injured.
